In 1790, wealthy financier Stephen Girard commits his pregnant wife, Mary, to Philadelphia’s only institution for the insane in the basement of Pennsylvania Hospital. In this nightmarish production based on a true story, The Wandering Theatre Company delivers another visually striking performance that highlights the mistreatment and disparity among humans that still exists today. With a unique combination of physicality and design, The Wandering Theatre Company brings The Insanity of Mary Girard to life in this timeless one-act drama.
